"Mindfulness Practice isn't just about escaping to some magical inner realm devoid of life's challenges. The Practice is about getting out of your head enough to engage each moment wholeheartedly. When we are Present in an open, kind, clear, and helpful way, the vast, mysterious, magical reality of life itself becomes self-evident .

Memorial Day

I've incarnated as Papa Smith and am spending the weekend with my daughter Persephone, her husband John and the two wonderful Grandkids, Lily and Demetri.  Sunday's party will include a joint Birthday Celebration with Demetri now officially entering the "terrible two's" and Lily taking her new blue dye hair-do into her 13th Birthday! Yikes.

So, with Community Yoga and Wellness Center closed for Memorial Day there will be no formal Monday Morning Mindfulness, on May 28.  I plan to spent time tomorrow morning Sitting with the memory of all those who've died in the warfare we have subjected ourselves to as a people.  MMM will resume on Monday, June 4. 

Anyhow, I'll return to Greenfield in time to join the #OMG! Peaceful Presence on the Town Commons by Noon on Monday,  Hope to see you there.
